Camp Testing and its partner labs follow Federal CARES Act, state and insurance payer policies for insurance billing of COVID-19 testing. The CARES Act requires insurers to pay for COVID-19 testing if a Camper exhibits symptom of COVID-19 or has a known or suspected exposure to a confirmed case of COVID-19. Each Camper must obtain a prescription from their doctor for a pre-camp COVID-19 PCR test. Click here for the form the ordering doctor will fill out.
